New versions of packettracer 7.2.2 and above are autoinstallables via run file, download it from netacad webpage and run it, you don't need this package.

To install packettracer 7.2.1 and lower, follow this guidelines: 1. Download the snapshot from this AUR. 2. Tar -zxf the packettracer.tar.gz snapshot (it creates the dir packettracer/ with the PKGBUILD on it). 3. Download the latest packettracer tarball from your Netacad account and copy it into the packettracer/ dir. 4. Create the package with the command makepkg (it creates a packettracer.pkg.tar.xz). 5. Install the package with either makepkg -i or sudo pacman -U packettracer.pkg.tar.xz.

You can always revert to the previous version ( ).

If anyone else has issues with the current PKGBUILD, leave a comment and I'll revert the changes.

Anyway, when opening files. pkt and. pka PacketTracket has friezes, so it's impossible to work.

Try uninstalling packettracer, and manually removing any traces you still find of packettracer on your system (rm -r /opt/pt /usr/bin/packettracer) normally these files shouldn't exist anymore after you removed the package so if they do, i think we found the culprit of your problems :)
Afterwards you can reinstall this package.

Error: No package does not contain /usr/bin/packettracer

What does pacman -Qo packettracer give?

Mr.Smith1974 commented on 2010-12-18 15:06

No, I did not do anything. Only install packettracer of AUR

Did you manually add a symlink for packettracer or something? Cause this package only places a symlink called pt in /usr/bin, there shouldn't be a binary called packettracer in your PATH

Here's the output after running (with an attempt to open file):

And the output of
LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/pt/lib" ldd /opt/pt/bin/PacketTracer5
would be nice as well.

Hmm thats exactly the same as on my system.
Could you run packettracer in a terminal and post the output?
